Historical Commission requesting photos of family cars

Post Date:05/09/2016 3:35 PM

Along with a classic car showcase, the Historical Sites Commission would like to display a history of Hoffman Estates vehicles at the Sunday at the Farm event in July.

Remember a time when a photograph was taken to commemorate the purchase of a new family car? Some families do it still today! Did you take a photo with your "first ride", as a new driver? Did the whole family gather in the driveway with the new sedan to take a picture?  

The Historical Sites Commission would like to see photos of the new car, pictured with or without the family, from Hoffman Estates origins in the 1950s to present day. If submitted, a car make/model, the approximate or known year and a family name is helpful. If mailing, please include a return address inside the envelope, to ensure return of your photo.

You may email photos to webmaster@hoffmanestates.org, post them to Facebook, post to Twitter, or send them via mail to: Hoffman Estates Village Hall, Historical Commission, 1900 Hassell Road, Hoffman Estates, IL 60169.
